AGENDA MEMORANDUM

 

Meeting Date:           June 27, 2011

 

From:                          J. Cunningham Perry, Human Resources Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution eliminating the position of Electric Operations Manager and approving the position of Deputy Director Electric Department

 

Staff Recommendation:

Staff recommends approval of the attached job description for Deputy Director Electric Department.  Staff further recommends deletion of the Electric Department Operations Manager Position.

 

Analysis:

There is a current need for dedicated full-time project management staffing in the Electric Department to ensure Leesburg’s functional and technical requirements are fully met during the deployment and implementation of the City’s Smart Grid Investment Project which is anticipated to be completed prior to May 13, 2013. The ongoing need for professional management of the newly acquired technologies and operating systems associated with Smart Grid requires a reclassification of the currently vacant Electric Operations Manager (Paygrade 137) position to Deputy Director of Electric Department (Paygrade 141). 

 

Options:

1. Authorize the adoption of the reclassification of the position of Electric Department Operations Manager position (Paygrade 137) to Deputy Director, Electric Department (Paygrade 141) effective upon approval by the City Commission; or

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

Fiscal Impact

The difference between the two annual salaries will result in an increase in Electric Department expenses of $38,667.20.
